Cycling Tour Rolls Into Greater Sudbury This Week

Jul 30, 2019

On Thursday, August 1, as part of the Great Waterfront Trail Adventure (GWTA), 145 cyclists aged 23 to 81 will ride into Greater Sudbury.

The group, participating in the ride from Sault Ste. Marie along the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, will make a number of stops throughout the city. 

On the final morning of their ride, cyclists will leave Espanola and break for lunch at Centennial Park in Whitefish. They will continue their ride to Stack Brewing on Kelly Lake Road for a water stop and visit a number of businesses in the area including My Mother’s Place, Crosscut Distillery, L.May Manufacturing and 46 North Brewing before continuing on to the finish line at Science North.

City of Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger will join the cyclists for the final leg of their journey, from Stack Brewing to Science North.

Barricades will be erected in the Kelly Lake Road area for foot traffic as cyclists visit local businesses. Motorists are asked to be aware when driving in the area.

Participants from Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, New Brunswick and five American States will ride 65 to 107 km per day as part of the GWTA, which began on July 28, 2019.
